The Shorter Wisden is a compelling distillation of what's best in its bigger brother – and the 2019 edition of Wisden is crammed, as ever, with the best writing in the game. Wisden's digital version includes the influential Notes by the Editor, full coverage of the Pakistan and India tours of England in 2018, and all the front-of-book articles, among which Wisden celebrates the end of Alastair Cook's career, and looks back 100 years to cricket's first post-war season. In an age of snap judgments, Wisden's authority and integrity are more important than ever. Yet again this year's edition is truly a “must-have” for every cricket fan. In essence, The Shorter Wisden is a glass of the finest champagne rather than the whole bottle. @WisdenAlmanack

The Standard Bearers collects some of Gideon Haighs previously published writings over the course of 2018-19, mainly for The Australian, as well as for The Times, Wisden Cricketers Almanack and Wisden India. Its a real-time record where youll read how Gideon narrowly favoured Australia cominginto the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, in addition to getting one or two things right. Its also a study of writings daily struggles, of finding something fresh to say, a new angle, a different perspective, a challenge that Gideon continues to enjoy rising to. The mood was one of introspection in Australian cricket, and at Cricket Australia, as a new season commenced, certain only in its dimensions: eight Tests, eleven one-day internationals and ten T20 internationals at home and abroad. Otherwise, everything was up for grabs, still, many months after the crisis of Cape Town, and the suspensions imposed on ball tampering conspirators Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft. At best, 2018-19 was going to be a two steps forward and one back sort of season.

A selection from Wisden's Notes By The Editor--the forthright opinions that changed cricket, its laws, its players and its history. "The Editor of Wisden is an important personage. It is he who decides the policy of the Cricketers' Bible and cricketers the world over look to him to give a lead on all controversial problems. His is, therefore, no easy task, but Wisden has been fortunate in its editors." That was written in 1933, and it is still true. The heart of the Almanack is the section entitled Notes By The Editor. The editor's opinions can change careers, laws--indeed every part of the game. This anthology is a brief dip into the half a million words or so that make up the annual Notes as the editors take a view of what really matters--the spirit in which cricket is played and how to keep it relevant and popular. And, of course, the weather. Throughout the Notes the Editors retain their sense of optimism and fervent love of the game, even when dealing with difficult issues such as bodyline or match-fixing, and they express their views succinctly and stylishly. As John Woodcock wrote in 1983, 'the game is never quite the same from one season to the next' and nor, indeed, are the Notes. However, as this anthology shows, the Notes are always stimulating and firmly expressed, providing an important insight into the cricket of the day.

He was top of the world, with numbers bettered only by Don Bradman - then captain Steve Smith led his Australian team into a cheating scandal that stunned cricket. Media exploded and million-dollar contracts were torn up. Australia's prime minister expressed the public anger and disappointment: 'Our cricketers are role models, and cricket is synonymous with fair play.' But there was more to the story than the actions of a few young men. A tangle of personality, politics and culture had led them to this point. Geoff Lemon witnessed that story from commentary boxes and press conferences, and was there in South Africa for its final act. This is a frank, fearless and often humorous account of the path from Ashes high to Cape Town low, from someone who watched it all unfold.
